Evil Games (D.I. Kim Stone, #2)Evil Games by Angela Marsons

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Traveling Sisters Review by NORMA, BRENDA and KACEEY!!

Oh my goodness this was even better than the first book, SILENT SCREAMS!!!

EVIL GAMES (DI KIM STONE #2) by ANGELA MARSONS is an action-packed, dark, chilling, interesting, and suspenseful psychological thriller that had us all flipping those pages as fast as we could.  What an extremely fitting and wonderful title for this book…..it was perfect!!

DI Kim Stone is back here in a thrilling cat and mouse game with one of the best, cunning, unique, and interesting sociopaths we have ever read.  At first we thought Kim has met her match but soon learned our sociopath has met hers. We were on the edge of our seats rooting for our favourite detective.  That’s not the only case Kim was working on as upon opening the book we were quickly introduced to Kim and her team capturing a despicable and disgusting child molester.  A case that appears to be solved but of course there is more here than meets the eye!

ANGELA MARSONS delivers another complex and layered story here and has created a scary mind-blowing sociopath who is such a good character that we disliked so much but on the other-hand loved.  What an awesome and complex villain she made.

DI Kim Stone continues to fascinate us and has us laughing out loud with her wicked sense of humor. We enjoyed getting to know her a little more and were heartbroken as we learned more about her dark sad past. We loved how Marsons gave us a glimpse of Kim’s soft side and vulnerable side as we could see her reactions and feelings as she related to and cared for the victims in her cases.

After being off our game for Silent Scream, we all had our game on going into Evil Games and we were all ready for the twists and turns.  We all started out strong with Brenda picking up on Alex’s evil games first and Norma and Kaceey right behind piecing things together.  Kaceey figuring out the big reveal early on with Norma right behind her picking up on one of the major clues while Brenda was twirling around in left field by herself.  With some confusion on all the sisters parts we were able to piece together who done it (not twirling Brenda) and our sociopath’s games making us all feeling quite proud of our gameplay.  Sure made for some interesting and fun discussions.

We are definitely keeping our game on and are looking forward to the action-packed
race against time as DI Stone tackles her next case in book three.
